My vegetable garden fence is doing a good job of excluding the rabbits this year. My flowers and fruit trees are on their own. I was sent a bottle of Bobbex-R Animal Repellent and thought I'd try it out on my flowers. It's all natural and combines several ingredients to repel small, plant eating animals. Well the odor repels this not so small plant eater and it also seems to deter the rabbits, since my pansies rallied after their initial beheading and are still going strong. I have since learned to spray in the evening, when the rabbits are feeding. By morning I don't notice the scent.
So far, I'm very pleased with the Bobbex-R and I think I'll try it on my bulbs, in the fall. Maybe the voles won't toss them all to the surface this year. If you're yard is a rabbit sanctuary too, I have some more suggestions for deterring, excluding and otherwise repelling rabbits. I'd be delighted to hear what's worked for you.
